I don't think it's any secret that David and I love to travel. Individually and together we have traveled to some amazing places in the world and in the U.S. From Australia to Nepal and a lot of places in between. Adventure and travel is really in our DNA.
The more time we spend traveling, the more frequent we get asked this question:
How do you travel so much?
I would say I get asked this question at least 5 times a week. So it's about time I write some of my thoughts on this. Typically my go to answer is "my work offers me a lot of freedom". While this is true, it is only telling a quarter of the story. In reality, the reason we can travel as often as we do is because we make it a priority. Is it easy? No, absolutely not. An average weekday for me consists of my 9-5 job, break for dinner, then working on freelance or side projects until late. While David is taking 17 credits and working 20-30 hours a week, coming home to work on his freelance and side projects.
What We Sacrifice For Travel:
- Fast-food/Eating Out
In Conclusion: We WORK OUR ASSES OFF.
Our favorite memories in life have been on the road with the people we love. I have found that two things happen on road trips, in a hot ass converted school bus for 14 hours:
- You have hours to reflect, be with yourself, and be in the moment.
- Get to know your friends better than you could ever imagine.
I know we aren't the only ones to experience those things, we just choose to experience them a little more frequent then most. And we are happier for it.
I personally think a lot of problems we face in society is because of a lack of travel. There are amazing people everywhere. Get out and meet them. Your life is shaped by your experiences. This recent video sums it up.
It's November, and if you didn't know this, it was about this time last year that David and I bought the 2000 GMC Short Bus that is known today as 'Sasquatch The Bus'.
For the summer Sasquatch has teamed up with Neff Headwear!
